I was told we were looking at a winger who was on trip at Harrogate previously and that’s where O’Connor was last week. 

Interesting. If we’re meant to be signing three this week and he is one of them and Maxwell is another that suggests we’re possibly only getting one player from Burnley.

NGL I'd lose no sleep if we didn't get anyone from Burnley

Aye, in the game we played against them none of them particularly stood out as being above this level. Gomez Mancini and Harker were undoubtably the two most tasty looking. As long as we do get another 3/4 In the door I wouldn’t be bothered if none of them were from Burnley. 
 

That being said AGM has a cracking name and I want him signed for that reason alone

If we were in for Todorov, Cochran and Smith and didn't get them, there needs to be a review in to recruitment. If it is training in Alloway rather than Glasgow that is the issue, or simply down to the way we conduct business. 

This has ben one of the most frustrating pre-seasons I remember. More than when we lost half a dozen players because of a "leak" in the dressing room during the Daziel era.

Aye, not exactly a club known for either youth development progression or players going on to make it at a lower level after coming through the youth scene there.  A total who cares of a partnership for me.

No idea of the status of the railway grounds, but so much potential there for redevelopment in the future by shifting it over a bit

Dont get me wrong, love the place as it is, but hopefully got the ambition to kick up a level eventually

I'm assuming we couldnt knock down the Main Stand? Is it listed?

Not my kind of music but the drone footage of Somerset is stunning
 

Shite stadium.

Shite music.

Good to see him wearing a Killie training top though.

I don’t think there was anything concrete in the Cochrane rumour tbh.

Todorov will have got more money at the Pars plus a move back to the East Coast and the Smith move has already been put down to him thinking that McCalls style of play is better suited for him. I don’t blame either player and don’t really see what Ayr can do in either scenario.

Say what you like Somerset is a great old ground with a brilliant atmosphere not like that kids Lego set Rusty Park.

Todorov was signing for about 3 weeks, once Hopkin came back from holiday, then on the first day of pre-season, then he buggered off the day before, If they had signed him early it wouldn't have been a problem. Giving him the chance to earn extra cash and an hour less of a commute came after we seemingly slept on the deal. 

Cochrane is a decent player and we should have been in for him but I'm not bothered we didn't sign him, other than we are short of numbers. 

Smith, from the chairmans retweet, we were in for but he decided to go to Thistle, sounds like he was looking for a deal back home and Ayr knew so he must have been offered something. It has either came down to an extra hour commute assuming he is Glasgow, money or he doesn't like the set-up at Ayr. If he spoke to Ayr, and told them he didn't like the style of play last year, I am guessing they would have told them it was not the same.

The land is probably the wrong shape for a training pitch, The land behind the north terrace could be used to almost build a stand behind the north terrace like Dunfermlines main stand used to be like.

I like Somerset Park my favourite away day even though I’ve never seen us winning a game there. Atmosphere is great.

However you would really need to have black and white tinted specs on if you don’t think the stadium, generally speaking, is a bit of a shitter.

I get where your coming from, is it out if date yes, could it be doing with a spruce up yes and the new chairman is working on that inside and out but I'd rather have what we have that the likes of Hamilton, Falkirk etc, hope you enjoy your visit to San Somerset this season and your record of never tasting victory stays intact

Just watched video of Daire O’Connor and I know it’s important not to get carried away with a showreel as it’s only going to have their best bits but he looks very promising. Glides past players with ease at times.

He was on trial at Livi, wonder if Martindale clued up Hopkin to him, if we are even in for him but looking at the clues it seems a chance of happening

The Harrogate manager was quoted as saying he was impressed by O’Connor so I wonder why they didn’t offer him something. 
 

Can we just sign three or four tomorrow please, and then we can just look forward to the league starting. 
 

I wonder if we will have a final friendly lined up to integrate any potential new players...
